Where the locals train

High performance fitness, training and gym for Ketchum, Sun Valley, the Wood River Valley and beyond. Where the locals train.


Week of 08/20/18:

I feel like the frequency model is still working, so I'm going to run with it for at least one more week. Of course there will be adjustments for the week, so as not to burn you out!

With that said I'm going to present a general format for the  upcoming week, where you the lifter have ultimate freedom!!! Scary I know.

Please follow the percentages carefully as not to over train

MONDAY: 40 - 55 % max (light): 3 sets/ 12 - 15 reps (strength conditioning)

TUESDAY: 55 - 70% max (medium): 4 sets/ 7 - 10 reps (body building)

WEDNESDAY: 70 - 85% of max (heavy): 5 sets/ 3 -6 reps (strength)

THURSDAY: same format as TUESDAY

FRIDAY: same format as MONDAY

You have total freedom of choice when it comes to choosing your exercises. You can repeat some if you like, that's why the percentages are there OR choose new exercises each day for each body part. 

NOTE: "Assistance work" will fall within the light to medium range for the week.

I will lay Monday out for you so you have the visual, but after that it's fill in the blanks, by you.
